Oliver looked east, where the ragged peaks scraped the sky’s pale belly. The sound had traversed the miles and echoed in his mind. Not words, but a command. It was followed by a stillness that made him wonder if the world had stopped breathing.
And so begins POINT HOLLOW, my brand new novel, available now from ChiZine Publications.
Point Hollow, NY. A town with secrets. To the tourists that visit each summer, it is quintessential America. They stroll through its picturesque streets and hike its stunning trails. No one sees the cracks in the town’s veneer. No one knows its terrible history … a secret that has been buried—forgotten. But Abraham’s Faith, the mountain that overshadows Point Hollow, doesn’t forget so easily. It is wicked and controlling. It is filled with the bones of children.
Oliver Wray is Point Hollow’s favorite son, its most generous benefactor, admired by all. But Oliver, like the town, has a secret: Abraham’s Faith speaks to him, and he has spent a lifetime serving its cruel needs. He believes his secret is safe, but one person has glimpsed the darkness in his heart …
Matthew Bridge hasn’t set foot in Point Hollow for twenty-six years. Something horrifying happened to him there. Memories of an ordeal that flicker and taunt, but cannot be recalled. Now, trying to find the answers to his failed marriage and failing life, Matthew is coming home. Back to Point Hollow. Back to Abraham’s Faith.
A straight-up serving of balls-to-the-wall horror, POINT HOLLOW is my second novel with ChiZine Publications, and I’m beyond thrilled to have worked with Brett, Sandra, and the rest of the crew again. As I say in the acknowledgements: They are giants in reputation, and it is richly deserved.
POINT HOLLOW is available now at select bookstores, and at all the usual online retailers. The e-book is also available. You can visit THIS PAGE for the quick links. And if you need more convincing, check out THIS REVIEW at examiner.com, who call POINT HOLLOW “…horror at its finest.”
